Újpest Football Club is a Hungarian professional football club, based in Újpest, Budapest. The club was founded on 16 June 1885 by school teacher János Goll in Újpest, just next to the borders of Budapest, the capital city of Hungary, under the name Újpesti Torna Egylet. It was formed first as a general athletic club, performing gymnastics and fencing, and their motto was "Soundness, Strength, Harmony".
In 1899 a football club was formed in the city of Újpest under the name Újpesti FC and with the same colours: purple and white. In 1901 the two clubs (UTE and Újpesti FC) merged and formed the football division of Újpesti TE and the club joined the second division of the newly formed Hungarian League. Újpest is ever since one of two teams in Hungary that have never missed a season since the beginnings of league games in the country.
Újpest FC is part of the Újpesti TE family. The club includes other sports sections that represent the club at ice hockey and waterpolo.
Supporters of Újpest are mainly from the fourth district of Budapest, the eponymousÚjpest. Due to the success in the 1970s, the club gained supporters from all over Budapest and the country.
